A Visit To Lekki Conservation Centre

Hello Everyone,

I’m so sorry for my silence so far .. Merry Christmas in arrears .. lol. Is there even a statement like that?

I trust that we are all doing great and I wish everyone the very best of 2017. Towards the end of last year, precisely in October 2016, I decided to start a journey on visiting 25states in Nigeria before I turn 25 years. So far I have been able to visit 6 states, 19 more to go?.
I hope that this year I would be able to visit more states. I live in Lagos state currently and sometime last year, a few friends and I decided to visit the Lekki conservation centre which is located just by Chevron roundabout, Lekki. It has the longest canopy walk in Africa .. that’s right, you heard me well?*Image  Source: Google

Lekki Conversation Centre is a Natural resource conservation centre in Lagos. It was created by the Nigerian Conservation Foundation in 1990. Its purpose is to preserve wildlife and nature.

Upon arrival, we went to the office to pay; the fee is 1000 naira and to do the canopy walk cost another 1000 naira. After we made payment, we got drinks from a store there and we headed to take a long walk which would lead us to the canopy walkway.
This particular walkway is basically made of wood and it was a long one and a bit creepy because we were hearing some animals sounds and we saw a couple of monkeys playing around.

Finally, we got to the starting point of the Canopy walk, I must advise that if you have a phobia for heights you may not be able to take this walk as the more you walk, the higher it becomes.

We were assigned a tour guide who was so much fun and very experienced.

At the beginning , my friend and I were scared ? ?.. This was the first stage though

After the first one, I was more relaxed and wanted to do more as it has 6 different stages and like I mentioned It’s said to be the longest Canopy walk in Africa. Each step takes you to a higher level.


After a short break we continued the journey, and truly the more we climbed the higher it became.

After it all, I finally made it to the last stage!

-Mama, I made it!!!

Finally, I was relieved and our tour guide took us to another section of the centre where there were relaxation spots and floor games.
Imagine seeing the ludo game and chess game on the floor.

After playing around and taking pictures and videos, we started our long journey back on the wooden walkway.

In all, it was an adventurous but fun day. Thank you for taking out time to read my post.

Please, I am still fully open to suggestions, comments and partnership.

Do well to share, like, repost, leave a comment, etc.

Yours,
Diusor

  1. I love the whole concept. It’s so you. Lagos shouldn’t be counted tho lol (home state). Just saying.
    I suggest you include:
    Jos; Kano; Calabar; Osun (Oshogbo).
    It would be fun if you go during some of the local festivals. Osun Oshogbo festival, Argungu fishing festival and co. Cheers!

  2. Thank u duisor, I was able to plan well for a visit to the lekki conservation centre. It was my baby brother’s birthday yesterday and it was fun. The crazy canopy walk….weeeeh.

  3. Wow babe, you just reminded me I have to visit there again. The last time I went, couple of years back, the canopy walk wasn’t constructed. Its something I would really love to experience too. Thanks and much love.
